This map shows how far I have traveled on my bike.
Sunday 28/1. Medicine Hat- Tompkins
146 km, -5 C. Good wind and nice weather. Slept in park.
Monday 29/1 Tompkins- Swift Current.
77 km, - 13 C . Much side wind, but nice weather. Slept in house.
One lady stopped me on the road and didn't want me to bike anymore. She said that it is too dangerous, she wanted to give me ride. I said no thank you, but had to talk to her for 20 minutes before she let me go. Anyway, she called the police and they came. This has actually happened to me many times now. The police man said he will send an e-mail to all police stations along the road and tell them about me, let them know I don't need help if someone calls. It is a nice little story. I got flat tire number 106 today, I asked one man if I could fix my tire inside his house. Too cold outside.
Tuesday 30/1 Swift Current
Relaxed today. A lot of Skandinavian people live here, I was invited to dinner with some of them and talked about my trip. There were about 20-30 people and it was fun! Two of the people are from the same village where my mother grew up in Norway. The world is not so big, really.
Wednesday 31/1 Swift Current-Chaplin
80 km, -15C Sidewind. Invited to stay with a farmer, he has 1,000 head of caddle.
Thursday 1/2 Chaplin-Regina
150 km, -23 C. Very good wind behind me all day. This day is one of my best days on my trip, felt like I was flying. I got a kick out of it. Was invited home by a pastor.
Friday 2/2 Regina
Will stay here a few days, I have a problem with my pad and have to wait for a new one. The pastor I am staying with here has been helping me out. I was invited to speak to some people tomorrow about my trip and winter biking, I think it will be fun.
Saturday 3/2 Regina.
Spoke to about 40 people and it was fun. Some of these people invited me home and said I could stay with them until I get my pad back.
